Yesterday, I wrote:
Tomorrow, there will be a teleconference organized by a Big Environment group to tell us about last year's drought and crop losses and -- undoubtedly -- try to tie them to global warming. It is appears to be an example of how Big Environment attempts to manage the news to make global warming seem worse than it actually is.
Here is the newspaper's coverage. Note the word "promises."
the official position of the United Nations' pro-global warming Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in their December, 2012, report. The newspaper doesn't even bother to balance global warming gloom and doom article with a pro-global warming source!
Finally, as predicted, the expert quoted is an attorney not a scientist. She is admitted to the bar in California according to the NRDC web site.
While everyone is entitled to their opinion about global warming, the above is precisely what I predicted: That scientifically questionable statements would be made by an advocacy group and media would uncritically print them.
